A Good Duke is Hard to Find (Isle of Synne #1) by Christina Britton

Get swept away by a Regency romance of broken engagements, second chances, and stolen kisses from the author whom Publishers Weekly calls "irresistible".

After her third fiancé leaves her at the altar, Lenora Hartley is beginning to think she's cursed. One thing's for certain: she needs to escape London and her father's tyrannical attempts to find her yet another suitor. The Isle of Synne, an isolated and idyllic retreat off Britain's northern coast, is blessedly far from society's gossip, but it also carries haunting reminders of her first fiancé. Letting go of the past to find happiness seems impossible -- until Lenora is thrown in the path of a gruff, mysterious blue-eyed man who makes her pulse race.

Next in line for a dukedom he doesn't want to inherit, Peter Ashford is only on the isle to exact revenge on the man who is responsible for his mother's death. Once he's completed the task, he'll return to America where his life can finally be his own. Yet when he meets the beautiful and kind Miss Hartley, he can't help but be drawn to her. Can Peter put aside his plans for vengeance for the woman who has come to mean everything to him?

4 out of 5 stars

A Good Duke is Hard to Find was a wonderful story! This was entertaining and sweet with a delicious slow burn happening. I had such a great time reading it and getting to know Lenora and Peter. I loved the push and pull they had going on and I was excited for them to get to their HEA.

I instantly liked Lenora and felt for her. I had so many questions about her past and was excited to learn all the details. I liked Peter a lot, he was so gruff and sexy but could be frustratingly stubborn. I loved his vulnerable moments and adored when he showed his true self. I liked them battling their feelings and the growing attraction between them. Individually they had a lot to work through and I enjoyed the build of them getting there as their relationship evolved and how they help each other heal and move on from the past.

This was my first time reading this author and it won't be my last. There was a nice cast of characters and I thought this was a good introduction to the series. I liked the storyline and was excited where it all could go. I thought it was a bit fast-paced in the beginning but then it evened out. I enjoyed the dual POVs and thought the descriptions were good and enjoyed the build. I thought Lenora and Peter had great chemistry and I enjoyed the underlying heat and the slow burn that was happening. There were a lot of entertaining moments and great character interactions.

It's one of those stories that I got wrapped up in because it was light and fun with great scenes, likable characters, and easy drama. It was a feel-good read for sure!
